Wow I had no Idea so many of you were concerned about the layout.
Thanks for all the great feedback.
Ian, I am not sure exactly where you see the extra 30cm
Colin, yes I am going to keep the standard gauge as it gives me more opportunities for rolling stock.
Bill, I am not going to get rid of the walkway it just need quite a bit of TLC.
Andy, I'm glad that I have prodded you a little.
Jo, I was really tempted to just say "F@#* it" and bin the whole thing on Boxing day, but a voice inside said don't give up! my tendency is to shelve things for a while, [I do have some unfinished projects that are 30 years old still have most of the bits in drawers] tough to let things go sometimes.
I needed to close in the open end of the asbestos building so got that done this morning. I also put the drawing office back where it belongs, I knew it would not work on the dock end.
The gates stay where they are, and the new bricked up building was shifted towards it and angled, which I like better, it will mean that the roof line will hang over the rear of the baseboard but that doesn't matter at this stage.
By shortening the asbestos building a few feet enables the walkway connection between the new building and it to have more length. Bertand seems to be bowled ver by the whole thing.
The whole crane thing is still giving me pause, it will sort itself out eventually The roof of the asbestos building will need to be reconfigured a bit too.
I think I will stick with the smaller tree
